109: What Software Buyers Look For - with Chad Stewart
Show Notes

This week we had a different perspective, the buyer's perspective, as I talked with Chad Stewart from SmartThoughts. Chad is a professional software buyer - organizations hire him to determine which software platform they should adopt. So he has seen every sales process imaginable and has a special insight we can learn from. In particular, Chad and I talk about:

  • The biggest mistake software sales people make
  • Why he is a fan of great salespeople
  • What is most important to be sharing with your buyers

Chad is really smart and totally understands how a sales process should be run. In fact, he loves it when the sales rep has a well defined, structured process that he and his clients can follow. Don't we all?
